A Message from Linda Brown, President BNC- Sarasota Chapter

Welcome to BNCSarasota 2021/2022

September, 2021

Throughout the past year, our Sarasota Chapter responded to the Covid challenge with creativity and flexibility, looking at the situation facing us as a challenge and opportunity.

Thanks to Zoom we took most of our programming online offering virtual study groups and Special Events that were already scheduled, as well as adding additional exciting programs as they presented themselves.

“A Conversation with Letty Cotton Pogrebin and Carrie Seidman”, and a study group with the director, author, and cast of the Sarasota Jewish Theatre production of “From Door to Door” were both extremely popular and received rave reviews.

Because of Zoom, we gained several new members living in other zip codes around the country, several of whom have already rejoined our chapter.
We started a Coffee and Conversation study group so we could get to know each other more than just as a name and a face online.

For 2021/22 we are offering a hybrid format of Zoom and in-person programming, with a wide variety of series and individual study groups, Special Events, tours, etc. Some are “oldies but goodies” while others are new to our chapter.

A huge thank you to our Editor and new member, Marjorie Goldstein, for her time, effort, and expertise in putting this Handbook together.

The committees have worked hard to plan these programs and events.
We look forward to having you join us for another stimulating and exciting BNC season.

Our Chapter Board meetings are open to all members. We would love to have your participation. Just let me know so I can send you the zoom link.

See you soon,
Linda
